The Yarn Butler is a fabulous knitting accessory. Just place your ball of yarn on the butler and it will turn smoothly as you use your yarn.

My husband has been busy with his lathe lately, and turned these Yarn Butlers for the shop. They are beautiful and functional!

I have tried one and love it.  If you buy skeins at the shop, I now can make them into balls for you, so you can use the Yarn Butler.

Today, I unpacked another order.  Here are a few of the new yarns in stock.  The new Hayfield yarns with 80% acrylic and 20% wool are very nice.  There is still time to finish up a few projects before gardening time comes along. 

We are receiving new yarns often and next weekend I will be getting a lot more as it is open house time at Diamond Yarns in Toronto.  Plan to do some “buying”!

Are you tired of knitting for awhile.  It has been a long long winter and maybe you are thinking of taking on a new hobby.  Try felting!
If you think you might like this, come on in to see what we have for you.  As well as books on the topic, inspiration items, needles, sponges, beautiful roving and Wool Pet kits.  The sock monkey kit is just so neat!

Got some new sock yarn in today and if you don’t really want to take the time to knit a pair for yourself, you might want to buy a pair already knit for you from On Line out of 75% super wash yarn and 25% nylon. Love the funky neon colours!

Great gift for the hiker you know.

This shows you a few of the tree decorations we have for sale at the shop right now.  So many of them will add that whimsical look to your tree. 

I don’t know about you, but I have been putting up so many themed trees in the past years, and my favourite part of doing this is getting all the ornaments out of the Rubbermaid containers at which time remembering the places I bought them, the people who gave them to me and who I was with when buying them.

Some of my favourite ornaments are the ones I have had for many years, given to me by family, friends and students at the school I used to work at.  I can’t quite understand people who change their ornaments every year, to match the “trends of the time”. 

Enjoy decorating this season

It is looking a lot like Christmas at Village Creations right now! 

In a couple of weeks I will be bringing in some vintage ornaments for sale.  Over the past few years I have put up and decorated as many as seventeen trees of different sizes in our home, and find it is not as easy as it used to be, so will be starting to “downsize Christmas” around our place.  Our shed is full of Rubbermaid containers full of ornaments - would you believe 50+ ! 

It is time!

The last two sweaters we have knit in the shop for you inspiration!  The first one is knit from Ultra Denim but can also be knit from Big Softee. 

The lovely mauve one is knit from Aaran that comes in a huge ball, big  enough for  this sweater. Enjoy!
